IMG_8211_edit_edit_edit

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           JANUARY 30, 2017           11.40 P.M.

End of a year is the time to make plan for the coming year. But it is also the time to take into account the year gone by. People often forget this and they remain unaware of their downward slide if there are any. And thus they fail to make amends.

This is precisely the reason, I started chronicling my accomplishments and write about the year gone by. Here I am chronicling some shinning achievements of the past and also what happened to me on the career front in 2016.

=====================================================================

Apart from them, I have trained modern-day Telugu super stars like ; ANUSHKA SHETTY , ALLU ARJUN , NAG CHAITANYA , RAM CHARAN & ALLU SHIRISH . Current Bengali super star DEV is also my student.

SUCCESS RATE : 2012 to 2016

Success Rate : 2012 – 2013 = 40 %

Success Rate : 2013 – 2015 = 55 %

Success Rate : 2015 = 62.35 %

Vidur’s Film Diary – December 2015


2

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           January 01 , 2016           08.15 P.M.

[ MILESTONE : Vidur’s Film Diary completed 6th year of its existence in May 2015. June 2015 marked the beginning of its journey in the 7th year. ]

As an ACTING TRAINER my success rate was 40% in the year 2013 – 2014 . It jumped to 55% in 2014 – 2015. This is unprecedented for any ACTING INSTITUTE or ACTING TRAINER. I am continuously writing Vidur’s Film Diary since 6 years. And to my utter surprise I am noticing that there were no lean months ever. It never happened that a month came and there were none of my students in any of the 5 fields of entertainment, which my diary covers. In fact there were more than a dozen working students every month.

For the full understanding of my body of work in 2013 – 2014 & 2014 – 2015, please watch the 05 videos posted below :

Vidur’s Telly Tales – 16 : Bigg Boss Connection [ E ]


2

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           OCTOBER 13, 2015           01.30 A.M.

The hugely popular annual telly show Bigg Boss is here again in its 9th season. I watched the premier show on Sunday i.e. on October 11, 2015.

 

Bigg Boss - 9

 

I found to my amazement that this season of Bigg Boss has 3 participants, who were trained by me. They are : Kishwar Merchant, Rimii Sen & Vikas Bhalla.

It is so uncanny that from Season – 1 to Season – 6, there were 2 students of mine as participants in every season.

Season – 7 had 3 students of mine as participants.

Season – 8 had the maximum students. There were 5 participants.

Now Season – 9 again has 3 students, like season 7.

There is just one regret. No student of mine were able to get the coveted title. Karishma Tanna was the only student, who became the 1st RUNNER UP in the 8th season.

B B - 8

Here is the complete list of all the participants.

Bigg Boss – Season – 1 : Amit Sadh / Ragini Shetty

Bigg Boss – Season – 2 : Monica Bedi / Zulfi Syed

Bigg Boss – Season – 3 : Aditi Govitrikar / Shamita Shetty

Bigg Boss – Season – 4 : Ashmit Patel / Samir Soni

Bigg Boss – Season – 5 : Mahek Chahal / Amar Upadhyay

Bigg Boss – Season – 6 : Niketan Madhok / Karishma Kotak

Bigg Boss – Season – 7 : Tanishaa Mukerji / Hazel Keech / Apurva Agnihotri

But ” Bigg Boss – Season 8 “ surpasses all the other seasons. It has 5 participants who are my students :

Bigg Boss – Season – 8 : Karishma Tanna / Minissha Lamba / Aarya Babbar / Pritam Pyaare / Upen Patel

Bigg Boss – Season – 9 : Kishwar Merchant / Rimii Sen / Vikas Bhalla

Thus total number of students, who participated in previous seasons of Bigg Boss and are there in the current 9th season , comes to 23. 

I challenge all the acting institutes, including ” Facebook Acting Institute ” , who love to shout from the housetop, to come out with their data regarding Bigg Boss Seasons. I don’t think I will get any response. There is deafening silence as usual.

Life As An Acting Trainer : 26 Years – 92% Success Rate


2

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           SEPTEMBER 02, 2015           07.00 P.M.

 

Mumbai is flooded with acting institutes. Everyday a new acting institute mushrooms and starts claiming that it is the best one. There are few old ones also. Though, they have passed their prime but still claim to be in the race. Then there are few upstart trainers, who have delusion of grandeur and success. It is but natural that aspiring actors get confused and are hoodwinked by these con trainers. These “Bunty & Bablis” try every trick from the book and sometimes succeed also in trapping these aspirants.

Therefore it becomes imperative to chronicle true success stories to save gullible students from the clutches of unscrupulous and con acting trainers. I am writing this blog so that such ARVIND KEJARIWALS of acting training should get exposed and shouldn’t go unchallenged.

When ” Bajrangi Bhaijaan “ got released and took the box office by storm, there were several articles in the news papers. It collected 100 crores by the first weekend and thus became the 1st ever Hindi film to enter THE BIG CLUB so quickly.

Bombay Times, dated July 21, 2015, published an article about THE BIG CLUB. It chronicled all the 35 Hindi movies till date, which are the biggest earners.

Out of 35 films, there is 1 film in 300 Crore Club / 1 film in 250 Crore Club / 3 films in 200 Crore Club / 7 films in 150 Crore Club and 23 films in 100 Crore Club .

I am so happy to announce and stating this fact with great pride that out of these 35 block-buster films, there are only 3 films which have no students of mine [ JUST 3 FILMS ]. These films are ” Ghajini ” , ” Holiday ” and ” Ek Villain “ . Apart from these 3 films my students are there in all the remaining 32 films. This is unparalleled feat. This is unprecedented success story. This is so humbling as an acting trainer. I don’t think any other acting trainer can claim such humongous success story. Even FTII, Pune [ Film & television Institute of India ] can claim such success in recent times. FTII gave many luminaries to the film industry but that was eons ago. It was during Shri Roshan Taneja’s time. This so-called premier (?) acting institute’s recent accomplishments are negligible compared to mine.

I am giving the whole list of films published in the July 21, 2015 issue of Bombay Times. Name of my students working in these films are also mentioned. It is now for the discerning public to judge the facts.
